    Been asked this many times. Should be but, I could see them having "payroll errors" on that.

    UPS doesn't care if you give them 28 man hours in 14 hours without a lunch break and then fall asleep at the wheel on the way home or drift into some kind of coma from lack of sleep. "Safety first" my ass. But anyway. This is what happens when we have the "most powerful" union in the country.

    Why don't you take your hour lunch and breaks? Seems to me youre just hurting yourself even though the Teamsters say you are entitled to them.

    I have been trying to get everyone in my center on board with this. They can't seem to figure out why they keep getting more work. Some people are starting to come around.

    Just talked to another driver tonight about this as he came to take stops off me lol. He was complaining about having to help people cause he was done and he didn't take his lunch OR break yet. I explained to him that it doesn't matter if it's peak or not, take your lunch and break per the contract EVERY day and it makes the job easier. if you don't then you just get rewarded with more work.

    It's always the same lame excuse. "I'll get home 30min-1 hour earlier."

    Yeah and cry about how much work you have every damn day.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    I've given up talking to the :censored2: sheep in my center. I just say screw em and take more stops off me. We have a 38 yr driver who skips lunch everyday because they shaved an hour off his time allowance. It's sad that most drivers pay attention to the fairy tale numbers that IE pulls out of their butts. Really sickening.

    We have quite a few in our center that do it, and a lot of them have 20+ years in. I don't understand how they haven't learned yet! But I'm alright with them coming to "bail me out" because I took my lunch and break already.

    38 years and he still has even a shred of care about numbers left?!?!?! I don't even have 10 years in and the only numbers I care about are the ones on my pay stub, any other numbers are irrelevant. My center manager told me there are certain routes that are impossible to scratch so I their numbers are 100% bull:censored2:.

    I rarely take lunch but they also never send me to help anyone. They tried in the beginning but when they would call I would say sure I’ll help so and so with business but I’ll take my 1hr lunch first. Then they say well they will have missed then. After 2-3 times they stop calling me, it’s all about how you play the game honeslty. My main reason for not taking one though is if I stop then I have no desire to start and work again after the body cools down etc.

    From a retired Teamster......the Teamsters are done.

    get whatever you can when you can before it is too late.

    unless a leader comes out from the ashes.

    The only kits fast cars run, have stages and purge. Have fun wasting your money.
